I had the opportunity to meet Nan while in Oakland for the Association of Pet Dog Trainer’s conference last week which only increased my excitement about and gratitude for her visit with us on the forum as this week’s pet expert. Nan took time out of her schedule to sit down and talk with me; and she was so helpful to me, giving great feedback on and solutions for a training situation I’ve been pondering so much lately. She’s a good listener, a thoughtful and compassionate responder, it was easy for me to see why her students and clients enjoy learning from Nan so much. I enjoyed my time with Nan immensely. She has a huge heart for dogs and their people.
I’m thrilled to welcome Nan on board at RBDT this week. She will be discussing the topic of her recently published book, Chill Out, Fido!.
